"When we become Wiccans, that isn't the end of our religious exploration, but (if we choose) the beginning. I see a lot of people nowadays who choose to call themselves Wiccan, but who do not seem to be changing themselves in any way. They seem to view finding the right label to describe themselves as the goal of their spiritual quest. Once they acquire the label "Wiccan," they breathe a sigh of relief and are done. They maintain the same values and beliefs as they had before, just under a new name."
